* An odd variation occurred during NBC's coverage of the 2012 Summer Olympics where, attempting to mesh live updates with pre-taped and edited footage, they would occasionally flash medal updates on-screen, while the commentator advised those who didn't want to be spoiled to look away. Unfortunately, they usually went ahead and spoiled the results in their promos anyway, but you have to give them something for the effort.

* In ''Bargain Hunt'' the viewers at home will get a sneak peak at what the auctioneer thinks of the items the teams bought, and more importantly what the auctioneer thinks of the expert's "bonus item" that the team may or may not go with. Usually this is the auctioneer saying just exactly how badly the item in question is going to do.

* Possible TropeNamer - John Daly and Garry Moore would actually say the phrase as the contestants' occupations/secrets were revealed on ''Series/WhatsMyLine'' and ''Series/IveGotASecret''.

* Possible TropeNamer - John Daly and Garry Moore would actually say the phrase as the contestants' occupations/secrets were revealed on ''Series/WhatsMyLine'' and ''Series/IveGotASecret''. ''What's My Line?'' experimented a couple of times with not showing the occupation, but it didn't stick, because a big part of the fun of the show was the audience being "in the know" when the panel wasn't. (For example, it would be amusing if the panel asked "Could this be used by both men and women?" for a product that was intended for use by animals.)


* The approximate location of the hidden object when a room is searched on the Toffler and UK versions of ''Series/FindersKeepers''.

* The approximate location of the hidden object when a room is searched on the Toffler and UK versions of ''Series/FindersKeepers''. The cameramen on the Eure version would occasionally zoom in on the hidden object's location if the contestants were searching the wrong part of the room.


* On the first few episodes of ''[[Series/{{Concentration}} Classic Concentration]]'', the rebus solution would be revealed to the audience superimposed over the numbered squares.
** Also, Alex Trebek would often use this exact phrase at the end of a round, saying "Let's show the folks at home how he/she solved the puzzle."

Added DiffLines:

** This is actually a pretty common occurrence worldwide with Olympic coverage, such that "If you don't want to know the results, look away now" became a CatchPhrase in many countries.

* The price of the items offered in "Clock Game" on ''ThePriceIsRight''. The audience also sees the prices, hence why the host asks for silence (a rarity on ''Price'' as it's one of the few shows that actually allows the audience to help the contestant come up with an answer, if not the only show). This is to avoid helping the contestant in this case, and at least one person had to be escorted out of the audience for failing to comprehend this simple rule.
